Address the challenges of tomorrow's world

What kind of world do people want to live in? How can societies be organised in a way that's fair? What role do new media play in the political opinions being formed by populations today?

During this intensive, small-scale, selective Bachelor's, you'll benefit from a truly interdisciplinary programme that applies politics, philosophy and economics directly to public policy issues in practice.

Through studying PPE at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you'll cover not just core courses in the three disciplines, but you'll also learn to apply those disciplines to challenging social themes like climate change, welfare policies, ethics of markets, or the formation of political coalitions. Plus, you'll master mathematical theories and methods that will prepare you for the academic rigour required from the programme.
